Since I posted the original info about my Dad's (William Howard Mullan) WWII Marine message I found out that there is aGovernment website where you can request your Dad's military records.
I sent for my Dad's and the data I got back was about 40 copies of official documents including my Dad's embarkation/disembarkation info.
You were right!
One piece of info was that he was with the
"Fourth Battalion, Fifteenth Marines, Six Marine Division. In the Field."
off of the
"U.S.S Monrovia at Guadalcanal on the initial landing and operation relative to the occupation of that island."
next was a mention of:
"First Battalion, Fifteenth marines, Sixth marine Division, In the Field"
"Initial landing of Okinawa Shima and operations relative to the occupation of that Island."
Therefore my original posting was incorrect in that he had not been on Iwo Jima but was on the initial landings of Guadalcanal and Okinawa.
